And I liked it! You really can't taste the greens. All I could taste in mine was banana which will have to be remedied in future concoctions since I'm not that big a fan of banana. The banana pieces I had in the freezer were quite ripe when I froze them. I generally like them a little less ripe and a little less banana-y so I'll try a less ripe banana next time.
I didn't follow a real recipe, but just threw stuff in the blender according to what I thought I remembered reading various places. (And by various places, I mean that I have no idea where I remembered reading it or if I remembered correctly. If this recipe belongs to you, please remind me and I'll link you up and give you credit where credit is due.)
This is what I put in mine:
Almond milk (started with 1 cup, added more while blending)
1 banana, frozen
a few chunks frozen mango
a frozen hunk of strawberries in honeyed syrup (I froze these last June)
2 large handfuls spinach
